MOSCOW - The Russian foreign ministry said on Sunday that a US order to vacate Russian diplomatic property in Washington and San Francisco was a "blunt act of hostility."

"We urge American authorities to change their minds and return Russian diplomatic facilities immediately," it said on its website.

On Saturday, Russian diplomats worked to vacate three properties in the United States, including the six-story consulate in San Francisco, complying with the US order which was issued in retaliation for Moscow cutting the American diplomatic presence in Russia.
